An eloquent illumination of the condition, Falling Bodies is an extraordinary debut novel of love and loss, despair and renewal, and the promise -- and limitations -- of the laws of physics.

Jackson's wife and two children are gone -- taken away in the blink of an eye by a terrible car accident. A professor of physics, Jackson can mathematically prove that the universe is governed by specific laws, can explain why planes fly and how matter interacts. But he can't fathom the consequences of loss, or reaffirm his former belief in the unifying force of love. Haunted by memories of happier times -- as well as by a nagging dread following an act of despair -- he heads aimlessly out on the open road, and finds a woman whose pain is almost as great as his. Now Jackson must discover whether she can help him to heal his past, or if he has the courage to even try....

With rare clarity and insight, Andrew Mark tells an unforgettable story that richly articulates the possibilities of life -- and the healing power of love. Download and start listening now!
